Hi, Jonathan,

Thank you very much for your quick comments.

Got it. I will delete this in next version.

Good catch, I will declare as DDR5 channel.

HIF stands for Host Interface which is a Synopsys’ custom-defined interface.
On the host side, there is a choice of an AMBA 4 AXI interface or a
custom Host Interface (HIF). The AMBA interface supports single or multi-port
configurations, while the HIF supports a single port only. Read, write, and
RMW requests as well as write data are received through the HIF. I will doc
this in next version.

The `perf` prefix means Performance Logging Signals in DDRC, I will remove it
in next version.
